Donors ‘dash’ to save lives

21st annual Donor Dash takes place as car parade in Washington Park


The 21st annual Donor Dash took place on July 18 as a car parade in Washington Park. The event takes place each year “to honor the lives of organ, eye and tissue donors; celebrate the lives of organ, eye and tissue recipients; and recognize those who continue to wait for a lifesaving transplant,” states a news release.

The Donor Dash is normally 5K run/walk in Washington Park, but this year, was converted into a weeklong celebration during which participants could run their own race if they wished. It culminated with the July 18 car parade, and participants decorated their cars with Donate Life colors — blue and green — and drove through Washington Park, beginning and finishing their route where the Donor Dash start line would normally be.

To learn more about becoming a donor, visit Coloradans can sign up to become an organ, eye and tissue donor at the time of death by selecting “yes” when obtaining or renewing a driver license or state ID, or online at the above website at any time.
